Sunderland Indie band Frankie & The Heartstrings are not just a great bunch of musicians and owners of the fab Pop Recs Ltd shop in Sunderland. They're also huge fans of Janice Battersby.
This week, Frankie & The Heartstrings are on a tour of indie venues around the UK and tweeted that finally, one of their requests on the band's rider had been fulfilled. Yes, they finally got their picture of Vicky Entwistle as Janice Battersby!
F: UNBELIEVABLE SCENES! We've been asking for this on our rider for years BEDFORD HAS DELIVERED !!! #Entwisle pic.twitter.com/YGf3pGXvRAHave a listen to the band's new single, it's a cracker. And yes, I am a fan!
